    Default Willow bridge to Sue

    Has anyone floated the bridge to Sue this year? Just wondering if there are any sweepers to watch out for, as I remember it being narrow in places. Is there a shuttle service for this float?
    Thanks in advance.

    Yes I have floated it. No shuttle service I am aware of. Shallow in a few spots and yes a few sweepers. Nothing out of the ordinary though.

    Willow Resort, last time I floated, offered a shuttle.

    Willow resort still has a shuttle. I would say willow has lots of sweepers. Two new trees fell this last week. One just bellow the log jam was almost all the way across the river. What kind and size boat do you have?

    I floated it about three weeks ago and there was a river-wide sweeper that I heard was only a couple of days old. We had a 14' sb and had to leap frog the tree where someone had cut off the branches.

    I think I saw icb or bowdy out there.

    Thanks for the information. I have a 14' raft. I was hoping to get into some silvers.

    I just floated Willow on Saturday. There are plenty of sweepers and tight turns but nothing too difficult. There is a log jam about half way down to the Su. I was told to go to the right of the log jam and made it around with no problem. Saw many kings in the first mile and the trout fishing was really good. After the log jam, started seeing insane amounts of pinks, many chums, and some silvers.

    I don't have a raft anymore, I was at the mouth sometime last week.
